Friday Discussion: How Old Is The Grand Canyon?

The question of the Grand Canyon’s age may not be the most crucial concern on your mind.  However, that issue has focused the professional attentions of Dr. Rebecca M. Flowers of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Dr. Karl Karlstrom at the University of New Mexico. CPFS_Poster_Flowers-Karlstrom

And this Friday, April 11 the two competing views will present “The Age of Grand Canyon: A Century of Debate.”  This event begins at 7 p.m. will be held at the Mining Museum (ballroom) and is sponsored by the Collegiate Peaks Forum Series.

Think of it as the old canyon (Flowers) vs the young canyon (Karlstrom), as the controversy brings to light new technology and raises fascinating questions about what was happening and when, in the Grand Canyon’s long-ago past.

In their presentation, “The Age of Grand Canyon: A Century of Debate,” each Doctor will deliver facts to support their position. They will then engage in a debate on the pros and cons of the issue.  They have sparred before on this issue and promise to give an energetic, enlightened debate on the Grand Canyon’s youth or old age, highlighted by good humored disagreements about what facts and figures mean that are provided by the latest technology.

The event is FREE and open to the public.
